The AIT2000 uses the latest AIS Transponder technology to squeeze more performance and interfacing options in to a housing that is half the size of our previous generation transponder.
This AIT2000 plus GV30 bundle is ideal for smaller boats and tenders, providing a single combination VHF+GPS antenna solution that makes installation easy and simple. The short whip VHF antenna of the GV30 does not give the AIS range of a larger half dipole VHF antenna but for most smaller vessels this compromise on range (typically GV30 reception is 10-15NM) is outweighed by the space saving and installation benefits.
This ultra-compact Class B Transponder has three outputs; NMEA 0183, NMEA 2000 and USB connection, allowing it to work with every AIS compatible chart plotter or software package on the market today. Featuring a remote silence button option, two NMEA 0183 Inputs and Outputs, four status LEDs and rugged vibration-proof mounting brackets, the AIT2000 is the third generation of Digital Yacht AIS transponder and replaces the very popular AIT1000.
For permanent USB connection to a PC or MAC, we recommend adding one of our NMEA to USB Adaptor cables, which provides an extra level of electrical isolation/protection against ground differences and static discharge.
Configuration of your vessel’s fixed data, such as MMSI, call sign, boat name, dimensions etc. is made easy with the included Windows and Mac compatible proAIS2 software*. Once configured, the unit will provide AIS data to a PC or Mac running suitable navigation software or a dedicated chart plotter, such as the latest Garmin, Raymarine, Navico, Standard Horizon and Furuno units.
